Marco Jentzsch

Marco Jentzsch studied singing with Irmgard Hartmann-Dressler. As a member of the ensembles in Erfurt and Hanover, he performed Tamino, Belmonte, Steuermann, Edgardo and Rosillon. He made his debut in Cologne in 2009 as Stolzing ("Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg"), a role which he subsequently sang at the Komische Oper Berlin (directed by Andreas Homoki) as well as at the 2011 Glyndebourne Festival. In 2010, he made his debut at the Netherlands Opera in Amsterdam as Erik ("Der fliegende Holländer"), shortly followed by La Scala in Milan (as Froh in "Das Rheingold") under Daniel Barenboim. He later also sang this role at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden. Guest engagements with roles such as Erik, Parsifal, Lohengrin, Max, Peter Grimes, Tambourmajor, Alviano ("Die Gezeichneten") and Bacchus have taken him to the Hamburg State Opera, Cologne Opera, Tel Aviv (conducted by Zubin Mehta), Zurich and Basel (Apollo in "Daphne"), Wiesbaden and the Dresden Semperoper. Most recently he made his debut at the Vienna Volksoper in the title role of "Tales of Hoffmann" and as Tannhäuser at Theater Klagenfurt. Future engagements will take him to Leipzig ("Der Freischütz"), the Volksoper Vienna ("Der Zigeunerbaron") and Schwerin ("Fidelio") as part of the Schlossgartenfestspiele. In Wiesbaden he sang Stolzing in the 2018/19 production of "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg". This season, he returns as Count Tassilo in "Gräfin Mariza".
